Lebanese army detains 50 in north after weekend clashes
BEIRUT (Reuters) - Lebanese troops detained 50 people in raids on towns and Syrian refugee camps in the north of the country, the army said on Thursday, part of a security crackdown after battles with Islamist gunmen over the weekend. The army has mounted several raids since Islamist militants clashed with soldiers in and around the northern city of Tripoli from Friday to Sunday, some of the worst fighting to spill over to Lebanon from the Syrian civil war. Soldiers moved on the towns of al-Minya, Mashta Hassan, Mashta Hammoud and refugee camps in the town of Behneen on Wednesday. ...

Labour faces collapse in support in Scotland - poll
Ed Miliband, leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party, sings "Jerusalem" as his party's conference is closed in ManchesterBy Kylie MacLellan and Alistair Smout LONDON/EDINBURGH (Reuters) - Britain's opposition Labour party could be almost wiped out in Scotland at a UK-wide election next year, a poll showed on Thursday, raising questions about its ability to defeat Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives. The poll, by Ipsos MORI, showed Labour could lose 90 percent of its MPs in Scotland with just 23 percent of voters planning to back the left-leaning party, which has been hurt by the rising popularity of the Scottish National Party (SNP). The SNP led a failed bid to secure Scottish independence in a referendum last month, but has since bounced back and its ratings remain high. If Labour's support in Scotland did collapse in a May UK-wide election, the party's chances of unseating Cameron in what is shaping up to be one of the closest electoral contests in modern British history would be badly weakened.
